Hi Leon,

I have always supported a multi-cultural
approach to Internet Governance.  I even
spoke for cultural values when I testified
in front of Congress two years ago:

And while America has some wonderful traditions
that resulted in the success of things like the
Internet, I agree that we have some problems
as well.

Senator John McCain recently claimed that
special-interest money is corrupting politics,
and he called the present method of financing
political campaigns ``an elaborate influence-
peddling scheme''

Nowhere is this more apparent than in the
current give-away of Internet resources.  If
Senator McCain's critics need any proof, they
need look no further than here!

While sometimes this fight against corruption
seems hopeless, I have faith that the forces
of reason will coalesce around a great leader
who will lead them out of the darkness.

Perhaps this leader is Senator John McCain!
